For decades, the workplace learning-and-performance field has found itself swamped with fads and misconceptions that harm learners and depress learning results. One of the most important sources of improvement is research. Unfortunately, research on learning is tucked away in academic journals that are essentially indecipherable to most practitioners. For research to be useful, it must be translated into clear, concise, and potent recommendations. Instead of focusing on hundreds or thousands of recommendations, practitioners need a short list of key factors to target for improvement. After 15 years of research, a dozen learning factors have been uncovered that—if implemented—can improve learning results dramatically. These “Decisive Dozen” will be detailed in a forthcoming book. This paper shares an abridged version of the research support.
